WHETHER YOUR LOOKING FOR AN ACTIVE HOLIDAY OR A RELAXING BREAK, YOU'RE SURE TO FIND SOMETHING TO SUIT

The Ardèche region is in southern-central France and forms the south-west corner of the Rhone-Alpes. It is considered to be one of the most remote, rural and scenically beautiful areas of the country. There is a wild and rugged character to Ardèche, and while it may be a relatively small area of France, its climbing and winding roads lead into a secluded backcountry which makes it feel enormous. The Ardèche is home to a mixture of natural and historical attractions. The landscapes are famous for rolling hills, forests and dramatic gorges, while the ancient villages and even-more-ancient attractions are part of an unthinkably long history. There are so many things to do in Ardèche, from getting active amid beautiful protected nature reserves to exploring the traditions and heritage of the region.
